Editor’s Note: This podcast has now been sliced in half. The all encompassing sports podcast version that discusses NFL Football, College Football, and other sports will release on Fridays. The version that discusses mainly MLS, North American Soccer, US Men’s national team, and international competitions will release on Mondays.
This week on the general sports edition, Sean, Gary, and Randy get together to debate and give out their lists for the Top 10 Most Popular Sports in the United States of America. We take into account TV ratings, attendance numbers, media presence, and all of that to come up with the most comprehensive list possible.
We also talk some NFL news as well. The NFL Players Association wants to hold the NFL in “contempt of court.” Robert Kraft accepts the Deflategate charges, Geno Smith being named the definitive starter, Dallas Cowboys running back situation, the Los Angeles Stadium situation, and a whole lot more.

Sean Garmer: is a crazy mix of Arkansas, Venezuela, and Texas all rolled into one. He studied Journalism at the University of North Texas and hopes to one day be able to return to finish his degree. Having been born in Arkansas, his favorite college team is the Arkansas Razorbacks, but all of his professional loves come from the DFW area, where he spent 20 years of his life. Sean’s first love is soccer, which began from having an entire latino side of the family that watched the sport. It then grew into him playing soccer all the way into high school and college. He was also able to do color commentary for the University of North Texas Women’s soccer team as well. He then transitioned that into several writing gigs on various websites, including being paid to cover every game in several World Cups. Sean is an avid FC Dallas supporter and has grown to love MLS above all other soccer leagues. His second sport is a tie between American Football and Basketball. Where Sean is a diehard Cowboys and Mavericks fan respectively, but also tries to keep up with other sports as much as he can.
Gary Vaughan: is a native of North Texas. He is also a graduate of the University of North Texas with aspirations of a higher level of education. Like a majority of Texans, football is his sports passion. Ironically, his passion for the game sparked from his love of Madden 98. From that point on he has poured hours into studying NFL history and game film. Gary is a student of the game and is a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. His second sport is hockey, followed up by the rest of the American sports scene.
Randy Isbelle: is a New York American sports fan stuck in the Pacifc Northwest. Randy is a former writer for a few sports websites and he was also a co-founder of the Coast 2 Coast Sports Report podcast. He now splits his time between watching sports, playing video games and being a father.
